Up next: OKCer Josh Wilkenfeld dives into what makes the Rosh Hashanah Musaf service different from all other Musaf services, and the ability each of us has to rewrite our personal histories with self-compassion.

Join fellow masked OKCers for an in-person, outdoor Tashlich service. We’ll gather on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah in Rays Meadow and disburse to one of four local waterways to cast off our sins, daven, and hear shofar. Registration is mandatory. (What type of bread should you bring? That depends on your sins.)
Let’s discover our connection points to one another! We will ask you to share fun facts about yourself, offer personal reflections, and engage in interesting conversation points. For each of these thirty days, we will introduce one new topic a day. Today’s topic:

Take some time to make a list of five dreams you have for the world, and then do something even harder: make a list of the things you can do to make those dreams come true.
